Living Earth: Cooperation With All Beings
‘All human activities, professions, programs, and institutions must henceforth be judged primarily by the extent to which they inhibit, ignore, or foster a mutually enhancing human/Earth relationship.’-Thomas Berry
“Nature does nothing in vain.”- Aristotle
"We must all widen our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."- Albert Einstein
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."- Margaret Mead
Hopelessness or Eruption of Hope?
We can all fall in hopelessness and despair or we can ask of ourselves: How can we harness our creativity, ingenuity, insight and ability to cooperate and take actions in the interest of the common good, recognising that we need to live more sustainably, fostering hope that indeed, yes, we can build a better world?
Is there any hope for a more sustainable world? Can we reimagine a way of living in which the nonhuman world matters also? How might we inspire hope and empower action for a sustainable and environmentally just world, with special concern for the most vulnerable members of the Earth community, or facilitate deeper understanding of human responsibility for care of our Sacred Earth?
